With today's release of version 6.4.0 of LINE for iOS, users can now back up their chat history on iCloud. This update means that you will now be able to preserve your previous chat history after changing to a new iPhone.

The update also introduces a new pinning feature! Pinning chats allows them to always appear at the top of your chat list for easy access.

iPhone chat history backup feature

The highly requested ability to transfer and preserve chat history is now possible on iOS through iCloud.
Backing up your chat history from your LINE app, go to More > Settings > Chats & Voice Calls > Chat History Backup.

Your chats will be saved to iCloud, making it easy to restore chat history when installing LINE on a new iPhone.

It is recommended that you disable cellular data use from iCloud's settings when using a limited data plan. From Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive, disable Use Cellular Data.

- You may not be able to back up all of your chat history depending on the amount of space you have available on iCloud.
- You cannot transfer chat history from Android to iOS devices. (Chat history can be transferred between Android devices.)
- This feature is available on iOS8.1 or higher.
